I got below error during deployment of the profiles. Anyone know what this permission is? Note: in both source and target sandboxes I enabled communities.

Meanwhile I removed this permission manually from the XMl and it solved the issues, but I don't want to do it every time after fetching the profiles from SF.

Ant deployment error:

  1. profiles/Admin.profile -- Error: Unknown user permission: ManagePartnerNetConn
  • In the org is there anything exist named as "ManagePartnerNetConn"?

Make sure Salesforce to Salesforce is enabled in the target org.

    Hi Quy, welcome to SFSE. Could you flesh out this answer with explanation of what this permission is/does, and perhaps share a documentation reference?

  • I just check it and Quy right. After enabling Salesforce to Salesforce seems it adding this permission in the profiles.

Switch to Salesforce Classic before enabling Salesforce to Salesforce From Setup, enter Salesforce to Salesforce Settings in the Quick Find box, then select Salesforce to Salesforce Settings. Click Edit. Select Enable. Click Save.
